Model 1886 Extra Light
Grade I walnut, straight grip, gloss blued finish, button rifled, half-length magazine, Marble Arms gold bead sight, and Buckhorn rear sight.
An 1886 that's light? The 1886 Winchester was designed by John Browning for Winchester to handle heavy calibers like the 46-70 and the 45-90. Something the 1872 and even the 1876 could not do. But the action of this version is not a "lite" version. You get all the calories of the original. But as has been done for nearly 130 years, this Model 1886 is available in a version that is a little trimmer, a bit lighter weight and a little faster handling. Back in the old days, nearly every rifle traveled on a horse which made weight a lot less important. This one can be carried in your hands. Carry one home this weekend.
Experience the power and performance of the legendary 45-70 Govt. cartridge in this magnificent Model 1886 Extra Light Grade I rifle from Winchester Repeating Arms. Another of John M. Browning’s great firearm designs, the Model 1886 features a deeply blued receiver, lever and barrel, along with a matching blued steel end cap and straight buttplate.
The half-length magazine helps keep the rifle trim and easy to carry, both afoot and on horseback. A rich satin finish accents the smooth walnut stock. A top-tang safety, adjustable buckhorn rear sight and blade front sight constitute the finishing touches on this legendary rifle. If you’ve always wanted to ride into the sunset with a great piece of Western history across your saddle, make sure you get your Model 1886 now, because its production will also be very limited.
